FULL PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO THE SHOOTING DEATH OF DUDLEY GEORGE NOW!
SELF-DETERMINATION FOR STONEY POINT!
Roderick George also plead guilty to one charge of mischief. Roderick must pay the $692.33 repair bill and a $500 fine. He will also be on probation for 12 months, for smashing a window of a police cruiser in the first hours of the Stoney Point return to their territory, formerly known as Ipperwash Provincial Park.
Judge A.M. Graham ruled that, "It is reasonable for (the youth) to assume that a breach of the peace was occuring and that Bernard George was being assaulted." Judge Graham also stated that attempting to stop the beating without using a vehicle would have been, "senseless and reckless."
On June 27, 1995 Glenn removed "tire-slashers" -- six inch pointed stakes planted by military personnel in a roadway leading to Stoney Point burial grounds. When confronted by military personnel about removing the stakes, George ordered them to, "Get the fuck off our land!"
Later, in the morning of June 28, 1995, Glenn George, then Stoney Point liaison with the military personnel, was again set up in another confrontation over incidents of Stoney Pointers' tires being slashed.
George was sentenced with 15 months probation and 100 hours of community service.
Abraham George was found guilty of assault and plead guilty to one charge of mischief.
Testimony based on a Victim Impact Statement was heard from Carolyn George, a sister of Dudley who was one of three people who drove him to the hospital after his fatal wounding by OPP bullets. Sam George, another sibling of Dudley's, as well as National Grand Chief Ovide Mercredi were also called to the stand, yet Dudley's own brother and Stoney Point resident, Pierre George, was told by the crown that he was not needed.
Pierre George, who was with Carolyn when they drove Dudley to the hospital on September 6, 1995, has spoken publicly on various occasions, yet he was not given the opportunity to tell how himself and Carolyn were brutalized and held by police when they arrived with Dudley at the nearest hospital.
Deane's sentencing will wrap up July 3, 1997.
Court proceedings will not resolve the many injustices committed against the Stoney Point People. Self-determination for Stoney Point on unceded territory MUST be recognized by the federal government.
